Them that curse you

The Occupy Wall Street protesters must be doing something right. They've been labeled as Nazi's by some of the circus clowns on the right including the greatest clowness of them all--Ann Coulter. Since the right seems to be willing to defend people's right to own and sell guns--whether or not the person is psychotic or is selling boxes of guns to drug runners--it's beyond me why a peaceful group of protesters are "Nazis" and must, by implication, be brought down by any means including brutal force. But what can a person even say anymore. The right's allegiance with all that stinks in this world, whether it be obscene wealth or callous violence, has completely discredited it as part of the spectrum of rational debate. There is no "middle" anymore. Just a corporate- and media-backed conglomerate of wealthy interests with a semi-rational faction (Democrats) and irrational faction (Republicans). The latter, unsatisfied with looting the public wealth gradually, is calling for the complete rape of the lower and middle classes. The media blathers about how the protesters are unorganized and don't have a nice tidy PR-doctored blurb for public consumption. In short, this is merely saying that the movement hasn't been successfully co-opted yet. If it is, we can expect them to roll into town on buses in neat lines with a script that has been approved by Exxon and Bank of America.

Wow... Not sure how you got "... the right seems to be willing to defend people's right to own and sell guns--whether or not the person is psychotic or is selling boxes of guns to drug runners." That's pretty hyperbolic, no?

Gun owners are both right and left, and owning guns for self defense is guaranteed by the constitution. We don't support just anyone owning a gun.Concealed carry and open carry gun users should have proper gun safety courses and abide by all CCW or other laws, governed by individual states.

You're demonizing a whole group of people (liberals included) who feel they have the right to carry and bear arms. Not quite fair to lump them altogether into one rotten little package (as you see it) is it? Remember, not all gun people are on the right.
